This National Trust Property has a wonderful set of gardens established by by James Bateman. He and his wife Maria had a passion for plants and the money to indulge their interests, and as the house was enlarged they began work on the surrounding gardens. In this they were helped by an artist friend, Edward William Cooke. They fell into decay but the National Trust has done a wonderful job in restoring them including the original dahlia garden.
